I would like to do a similar set up eventually. I will probably start with a catback, just to hear something. Itís so quiet stock.

anybody much shorter than me would not even know the car was there.


The FR-S is a speed bump to some trucks

Installed a Harman NAV module (86100-YY050) from a Prius to my head unit. Works great! Thanks to @Face_Plant for the great deal!

Got some new tires over Labor Day weekend from Discount Tire Direct, BFGoodrich G-Force Comp 2 A/S https://www.discounttiredirect.com/b...-2-a-s/p/29878 They matched Tire rack's $119./tire price plus took the $70. rebate off. Had them shipped to a local Discount Tire store for installation, no tax, free shipping. Took a road trip over to Asheville, NC through the Smokies. Like the tires, very grippy.

Topic for another thread, but Iím not sure if Iíd ever bring myself to purchase an electric or hybrid car. Not an expert on any of this by any means, but I would imagine an electric FRS would be a beast.

And then, we will have "motor swaps" instead of engine swaps -

Soooooo awesome!!!! Your car looks great, love the yellow headlights. I imagine the twins on a track are like an energetic dog that is taken off itís leash. It can stretch itís legs and wag itís tail.
